INSTALLING KOGER SUNSHADE for SONEX

Directions (TAPE-ATTACH method)

THIS STYLE OF SUNSHADE WAS DESIGNED FOR SIDE-BY-SIDE SONEX PLANES WITH BUBBLE CANOPIES. IT IS NECESSARY TO FIT THE SHADE PRECISELY TO THE CANOPY OF EACH INDIVIDUAL AIRCRAFT.


INSTALLATION PROCEDURE:

  1. Place a strip of electrical tape on the outside (top) of the canopy, down the centerline, by sighting from the prop to the tail.
  2. Fit the aluminum channel precisely to the canopy. Place the channel on top of the electrical tape (on the outside of the canopy). The channel can be bent by hand to follow the canopy contour exactly. The channel must fit the shape of the canopy exactly so that there will not be any pressure to cause the  channel to pull the tape away from the canopy. 
  3. Clean the area under the tape (inside the canopy) using a cloth dampened lightly with denatured alcohol or 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner Part No. 051135-08984.
  4. Climb into the cockpit and close the canopy. Mount the rear rib in the back end of the channel, and check that it is straight across. Due to the curvature of the back of the canopy you will likely have to mount the center channel a couple of inches ahead of the very back of the canopy.  Remove the protective cover from the 2” double stick tape pieces on the channel. Using the electrical tape on the outside as a guide, press the channel into place at the double stick tape areas. PRESS HARD.  Once mounted, climb out and look at the tape from the top. If there are any bubbles, press it again to try to remove as many bubbles as possible.
  5. Bend the ribs to fit the canopy. Starting from the rear, mount and bend the ribs. They should follow the canopy and exert a slight pressure on the ends against the canopy when the sunshade is extended. Leaving them in place will help you determine the general location of each numbered rib. Remove the ribs and thread the shade fabric onto them in the same order that they were fit. The rib sleeves in the fabric go on top.
  6. PLACE  A DROP OF SUPER GLUE on each rib & fabric next to the center channel. This will prevent the fabric from sliding off the ribs. 
  7. Install the other side fabric on the ribs; glue and place the completed unit in the channel. 
  8. Tighten the black thumb screw at the rear of channel. The front larger (white) thumb screw is then used to extend or retract the sunshade.
